Volunteer Requirements


DURATION

The minimum stay is 1 month, as by the time you have adjusted to local conditions, any shorter period will not really be practical to learn about primates and our work.

VISA

Please contact us, on the latest position regarding visas.



DONATION TO COVER COST OF STAY

Firstly we would point out that because we offer such a unique opportunity for hands on work with Primates you need to book as far in advance as possible because places are very limited.

We also have limited on-site accommodation at The Tree House which may be available for a minimum donation of 5,000 Rs per week.

If you would like to find your own accomodation, please make sure that its possible to arrive at the Tree House on time as we have a set timetable starting at 8:00am.

 

INSURANCE


Please note that you need to be covered by adequate and suitable travel insurance which will cover you working with animals and also repatriate you in case of an emergency.


TRAVEL

Volunteers are responsible for all their own travel arrangements to and from Goa, India and the Tree House.
